Review written by Sophie Couard, August 24, 2015.

In the heart of the stunning Palais des Festivals, the Croisette Casino Barriere Cannes offers relaxation and unforgettable entertainment. Let us introduce this renowned establishment, which is one of the top 15 in France, in terms of turnover.

245 slots, table games and the largest poker room in France

Let us start this review about the Croisette Casino Barriere in Cannes by talking about the games selection.

The slot machines

The casino offers 245 slot machines with stakes from 1 cent to €10 on an area of less than 3,000 m², which is decorated in a Mediterranean style, with statues of mermaids. You can find:

  • an electronic English roulette with 40 spaces,
  • video poker,
  • video slots with 5 reels,
  • mechanical slot machines with 3 reels.

The slot machine room is open every day from 10 am to 3 am all year long, until 4 am on weekends, and until 5 am during the summer. The selection is regularly updated in order to stay en par with technology. This means that you will be able to find new machines all the time. As I write this review, you can for example enjoy various new games including several games inspired by cult works, such as Superman, Jaws, Betty Boop, The Mummy II, or Zorro.

The table games

The room with the traditional games offers a modern and dynamic atmosphere, and is open every day from 8 pm. It offers:

  • blackjack,
  • English roulette.

You can also enjoy the sharks, and play at one of the tables next to the large aquarium of the establishment.


The Croisette Casino Barrière in Cannes also has one of the largest poker rooms in France. The decor of the room is modern and cosy. You can play:

  • cash games from 3 pm,
  • Weekly tournaments from 8 pm, except Tuesdays, and from 2 pm on Saturday and Sunday,
  • exceptional tournaments.

You can play the poker variants :

  • Texas Hold'em,
  • Omaha.

You should also keep in mind that in all land-based casinos in France, access is restricted to adults who are not prohibited from gambling. Admission is subject to the presentation of a valid ID (valid passport for foreign nationals ).

A bar and a restaurant, but no hotel

Besides this great selection of games, the Croisette Casino Barrière in Cannes offers other activities aside from gambling.

The bar at the slot machines

You can enjoy the lively atmosphere at the slots bar in the slot machine room, and take a small break between two games, go on a date, or an evening with friends. Fancy a drink? You will be tempted by the 100-year cocktail, which was designed especially for you by the Lucien Barrière group!
The bar is nestled in the games room, and reserved for guests over 18, as mentioned above.

The Café Croisette

Located on the mezzanine above the slot machine hall is the Croisette Café restaurant that offers stunning views of the Old Port of Cannes and the Suquet. The menu changes frequently and invites you to enjoy the flavours of Mediterranean cuisine. Several dishes are available, from €14.90 to €42.50. You can visit the restaurant every day from 12 pm to 2.30 pm and 8 pm to 11.30 pm.

It is important to note that the establishment does not offer any accommodation on the premises directly. However, there are many hotels in Cannes on the Croisette, including for example the Hotel Mercure Cannes Croisette Beach with prices starting from €419 per night, or even more luxurious are the Croisette Beach Hotel or the Hotel La Villa Cannes Croisette. Additionally, the Lucien Barrière group welcomes you at Majestic Barrière or at the Gray d'Albion, which are both located just a few meters away from the casino.

A legendary location and easy access

Located in the famous Palais des Festivals, Le Croisette Casino Barriere in Cannes enjoys a prestigious location that is easily accessible, and close to all the sighs of the city centre.

A friendly welcome and a great atmosphere

Let us now talk about the general atmosphere at the Croisette Casino Barrière in Cannes.

I would like to say first, that the premises are beautifully designed and very clean. It is very neat, and offers plenty of space as well. They even have a huge aquarium with large fish in the lobby.

You can also expect the staff giving you a friendly welcome and great service. It is very easy to play at the tables, as the dealers will help you and take the time to explain to you how the various games work. Similarly, the security officers do a good job as well. They monitor everything that is happening, and keep an eye on the slot machines, table games, the bar, and the restaurant.

In short, the establishment appears very welcoming, and offers all the luxury and quality of service that you would expect from such an establishment. You can expect a classy atmosphere, and no customers wear shorts, like they do in other establishments at the Côte d'Azur. It is a charming place that offers outstanding entertainment and relaxation.
